Long Lining For More Fish
Leave Nothing to Chance with This Powerful Technique


During adverse weather and temperature conditions, like those found during the early season in northern waters, long lining can make a huge difference.

During the spawning season and most of spring, long line trolling using minnows or other baitfish in the shallow water can be more effective than hitting every deep water hot spot on the water.

Look for flats near the shoreline, and long line troll across the flats close to areas where the Walleye are spawning using the minnows set at a shallow depth.

This technique may well work even after the spawn is finished, because many times the males will stick around for two or three weeks after the spawn is done. Look for flats that are sandy or full of gravel. Very slowly troll the entire area, changing your speed and lures as needed to be effective.

Make sure that the lines are the right distance behind the boat for the water depth and the trolling speed you are using.

When you are in shallow water the long lines should be a longer distance behind the boat, to allow the Walleye to move out of the way and then come back to the area the bait is going through.

Between one hundred and two hundred feet behind the boat is a good yardstick for shallow water and trolling over flats.

If you are trolling the flats and you need to cover a large area, one way to do this is to use inline planer boards which are small, and you can run the baits on the long line behind the planer boards.

This will help you spread out your bait more, and increase your chance of finding the Walleye.

Of course, always follow the laws in your area concerning the number of lines each person can have out.

Thin crankbaits can really help during this trolling technique, because the wobble they provide is not as aggressive as the fatter crankbaits.

#13 Floating Rapalas work great in the spring, and if you need an even shallower bait try the #11 series as well.

For warmer weather when the Walleye are deeper, jet divers with spoons, worm harnesses, and deep diving crankbaits can be set between one hundred and twenty and one hundred and sixty feet behind the boat, with a trolling speed of around 1.5mph.

Troll around the underwater structure in the deeper water, and also near the edges of any weed patches in the area.

Long line trolling can really be effective, by placing the bait at just the right distance to negate the effects of your boat on the Walleye.

You may have to vary the length of the long lines behind the boat, and make some speed adjustments, to find the most effective combinations for the specific conditions, but once you do these techniques can really bring in the fish.
